Plaid Skirt Confessions by Selena Kitt

Plaid Skirt ConfessionsPlaid Skirt Confessions by Selena Kitt

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was recommended to me a long time ago and I finally read it this week. All I can really say is, damn! So many torrid sex scenes. It lagged for me a little during the scene about the church confession but everything else was great. I love first times, masturbation, secrets. Yes, yes, yes! I loved this book.

Chains and Chocolate by Bonnie Bliss

Chains and Chocolate (Dominance)Chains and Chocolate by Bonnie Bliss
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very descriptive BDSM story but it's also rather endearing. It's a day in the life of a loving married couple who have a passionate sexual relationship.

I was quite surprised by this book. At first I didn't know if I could get into it because my usual preference is a story that takes me on an emotional and physical adventure and has a little more tension and isn't about a happily married couple. But as I kept reading, I found myself wanting to read more. I wanted to trade places with Marie, especially after they moved down to the dungeon. I felt like I was right there, sharing the experience. This story is a keeper for me. I will not be deleting it from my Kindle anytime soon.

I will definitely read more by Bonnie Bliss. If you enjoy a super sexy BDSM read, you should NOT let this book pass you by. The story is a decent length, well-written, and got me very warm. :)

Cheating Confessions: While the Wife Is Away by A Missy Diamond

Cheating Confessions: While The Wife Is AwayCheating Confessions: While The Wife Is Away by A Missy Diamond
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Wow. Or maybe I should say, WOW, like the guy in the book did a few times. There was nothing sexy about this freebie. I think men can write great erotica but this sounded like it was written by a man who only halfway tried. I don't even care about the cheating aspect. That can be hot sometimes if you just think of it as fantasy. But this wasn't hot. This book was also poorly edited, using "my" instead of "me" in one place. Also, a big pet peeve of mine is there were commas missing at the end of dialogue.

It's already Christmas??

I apologize if you've tried to contact me the past few days and I've been M.I.A. I'm still here. I was suddenly swamped with emails for link exchanges, book reviews and lots of other good stuff. :)  And then I realized what day it was!!  All month I kept thinking Christmas was far away. Even when my co-workers and friends talked about it. It didn't dawn on me that it was almost Christmas until the 20th. Then I realized I horribly unprepared I was for my family festivities.

I'll be out of town for a few days but hopefully while I'm gone I can read one of the many books I now have on my Kindle. Family's great but I know I'll need a few hours here or there to drink some mimosas and curl up on a love seat with my new books.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!

Threesome by Roxy Jacobs

Threesome (erotic menage)Threesome by Roxy Jacobs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was pretty good for a freebie. It was a quick read and didn't give me much time to really get into it, but I enjoyed it for what it was. It was surprisingly well-written for such a little story. I found it unbelievable that it would be so easy for her to go to their apartment and start getting it on, but oh well. It's porn. It doesn't have to be realistic. It was a nice little sexy story.

First Taste - Paisley Smith

First TasteFirst Taste by Paisley Smith

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

When this started I thought I'd like it a lot more than I did. I'm usually a big fan of F/F erotica.

A few things in the first scene where the ladies go off to the bathroom really turned me off. The girl basically realizes she's in love with this Haley chick who she hasn't even seen in years. I don't know. This is just a personal preference but since it was a short story I guess I expected more of a passionate sexual encounter than anything love-related.

I would still recommend this book. It just wasn't for me.

That One Night in Vegas - Brindle Chase

That One Night in VegasThat One Night in Vegas by Brindle Chase

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a steamy little book. Just the right amount of build up. I loved the thoughts going through the narrator's head. They definitely added to my overall enjoyment of the story. It's written like it's a true story, and whether or not it is doesn't matter. It's a situation I'd love to find myself in. :)

Housewives in Love - Marlene Sexton

Housewives in LoveHousewives in Love by Marlene Sexton

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was okay. I will not leave this review at Amazon because I think it only reflects my personal opinion. For me, this book lacked passion but I may have had unfair expectations. I only downloaded this book tonight and I read it before a lot of other books I had on my list because it looked like a good, quick lesbian romp, which I love to read about. Again, I think my expectations were too high. But I also felt there were many parts of this book where some of the best action was glossed over when it could have been more detailed and a much greater turn-on. It was dry. I feel weird saying that after reading all about the juices in the book, but I would definitely call this book dry.

I just didn't have much of a physical reaction to this book but it's far from the worst lesbian erotic book I have ever read. I would probably give this author another chance.

Note: There were a few proofreading errors but nothing that interfered with the flow of the book.

Colters' Woman - Maya Banks

Colters' Woman (Colters' Legacy, #1)Colters' Woman by Maya Banks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love the Colters' series. It was unbelievable at first but the men of the Colter clan grew on me, quickly. I don't care how far-fetched some of these readers think it is. It's fantasy and I love to get lost in some Maya Banks books.

I would leave a more extensive review but my advice is just to read it. It's not for everyone and I think it's better to let this series surprise you than to go into it with any expectations.

This series got me through some rough times and took me to another place just when I needed it. That might sound stupid but it's true. I love these books.

Kept - Carolyn Faulkner

KeptKept by Carolyn Faulkner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a great book. I can't say I liked it as much as some of the other spanking romance stories I've read, but it's definitely a five star. I love spanking romance, and I loved that this book had a plot. I felt guilty for getting it for free from All Romance Ebooks months ago. I highly recommend this book even if you don't like spanking. But I recommend it even more if you do. :)

Moan For Uncle - Terry Towers

Moan For UncleMoan For Uncle by Terry Towers

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of the best erotic books I've read out of all the books I've read lately. It deserves the high praise it gets. The sex scenes are scorching hot. This writer knows how to set up a scene and make the reader feel like they are getting an eye full of action. I've read it several times since purchasing it last week. I had no idea I would be into any kind of taboo erotica but I guess I am. Thanks Terry Towers! I've bought a lot more taboo since reading this.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm officially a pervert. I LOVED this book and I will read it again. I want to be Kevin's mom. Usually I wouldn't like something this dirty. Words were used that often turn me off but I didn't mind it one bit. I want more! There's action from nearly the very start to the end. Hot, dirty action.

Who am I?

This is a response to a lot of interesting hits I see coming to my blog, and a private message someone just sent me on Twitter.

I have been a book blogger before. Several years ago I had an extended hospital stay. That's when I found my love of reading, during five months of therapy after an accident. That is also how I became interested in weight training and body building.

I'm thrilled to finally have a Kindle because I can read it while I'm working out and sometimes at my job when I'm on phone duty. I get to sit at a desk for several hours a day at least one day a week and answer a phone that might ring ten times. So I have a lot of time on my hands. And now I don't have to lug books back and forth. I can just download the newest free Kindle books.

I will review books that are not free but I made the mistake of buying a few books that were not worth it when I first got my Kindle recently. So I love the freebies. But I also do not mind paying for books (this is in response to the Twitter message I just received).

I still barely maintain my other book blog but it's not for erotica. I'm a little older now and I like my fiction with a bit more porn these days.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I made the mistake of reading this in front of other people today, thinking I was being clever. I will not make that mistake again. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Very nicely written. I loved the male character, Jake, and I will fantasize about that wooden spoon.

I will definitely read more by Susie Taylor and Marie Shore. I got this as a Kindle Freebie but that's only because there were so many to choose from. I'm so glad I downloaded this one!

My Dad's BossMy Dad's Boss by Alexis Moore

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

That was actually pretty hot. This was a freebie, so I really shouldn't complain about the book length. About half the book was samples from other books by the author. But this short story was pretty well-written, sexy, and funny in places.

I Effed Ashton - Anonymous

I Effed AshtonI Effed Ashton by Anonymous

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This was a BIG waste of time. Thankfully, the actual amount of time wasn't that long because it didn't take long to read. And I admit, I skimmed most of it. It doesn't belong in the erotica section. There's no erotica to be found. It does, however, look to be well-edited and written quite well. The narrator claims to be an aspiring screenwriter, so that might explain it.

I don't know if I believe this is really the person who broke up Ashton and Demi's marriage, and I don't know if it matters. This was pretty boring and I feel no more enlightened about Hollywood, or Ashton, or.. well, anything after reading this. It left me with nothing.

Bi-Sexual Threesome Adventures - Mary Breezeway

Bi-Sexual Threesome AdventuresBi-Sexual Threesome Adventures by Mary Breezeway

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I found the writing to be very distracting from the plot. The plot had potential, but maybe I've read too many books lately and I'm becoming a snob. I don't know. This would have done well with a good edit. Read it and you'll see what I mean. Too many commas. He "shook his head yes." Really? I thought you had to nod your head yes? Things like this were scattered throughout the book.

Shut Up and Kiss Me, by Jessica Reve

Shut Up and Kiss MeShut Up and Kiss Me by Jessica Reve

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

So boring. Boring. Boring. Boring. And needs some heavy proofreading. That was so distracting.

"Me too" Kelly said with a smile...

It occurs throughout this short book.

We start out in this book the day after Kelly and Jason have a fight. They're still fighting. Somehow they end up fucking. Okay.

What really bothered me about this book is that there was no setup. It was difficult as a reader to feel any chemistry or heat from the sex scene after the short summary of the couple's fight the night before. I did not expect the deepest plot in the world but there wasn't enough history to make me connect with the characters enough to care about their sex scene.

Spank Me Until I Come... How I Spent My Honeymoon - Celeste Steel Knight

Spank Me Until I Come... How I Spent My Honeymoon (Montana and Dane)Spank Me Until I Come... How I Spent My Honeymoon by Celeste Steele Knight

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Maybe I just didn't get it? I love a good spanking story but this was a big disappointment. There was a lot of romance. A lot of talk about the movies they watched on the honeymoon. A lot of boring stuff to wade through to try to get to the action. I love to see a plot with my erotica but this didn't have much plot. Was it supposed to be a true story? Maybe that's the reason I didn't get it. I saved this for my *wink wink* late night reading and it didn't give me what I needed. I will not post my review at Amazon because I don't think it's helpful to anyone.

Anal Whore - JT Holland

Anal WhoreAnal Whore by JT Holland

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is written well but there's nothing original about it. I don't really mind the general misogynistic nature of the book. That's to be expected from a title containing the word 'Wh*re.' But I didn't find it sexy at all because the dialogue was all exactly what you'd get from a skin flick, and maybe that's the point. Maybe that's what Mr. Holland intended. If so, congrats to you, Mr. Holland. You succeeded.

Three - Opal Carew

ThreeThree by Opal Carew

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I read the other reviews and this book had been on my TBR list for a while so I gave it a whirl. No, I have to admit, the other reviews were right. I can usually deal with "unbelievable" but this was too far-fetched even for me. I just about laughed out loud when the third guy showed up.

I enjoy a sense of fantasy with my erotica. Barely any erotic book I've read could be called 'realistic' but this one even pushed my limits. If it had been longer or there had been more of a plot, maybe I could have gone with it. I don't know. I do like the way Opal Carew's mind works though.

A Job With Benefits (An Erotic Short Story)A Job With Benefits by Valerie Honeycutt

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I feel bad giving this just one star so I gave it two. I think the author was really trying. But damn. Take some writing lessons. This belongs on Literotica, NOT on Kindle.

I read the whole thing but I gave up on any hope of it being good after "tingle in the tip of his dick."

Snow White - another BAD Whiskey McNaughton Book

The Orgasmic Awakening of Snow WhiteThe Orgasmic Awakening of Snow White by Whiskey McNaughton

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

There is nothing erotic or amusing about this book or any of the other books I bought by this author. "lips wrapped loosely around his organ." Oh, please!

And I'm pretty sure the author leaves their own reviews for all these books. Look at the profiles. Don't believe the reviews. I stupidly purchased three books by this terrible writer and it was based on the false, inflated reviews. Shame on you, Whiskey! I WILL get my money back!

Whitney moving to Wednesday

NBC Wednesday nights just became "Worthless Wednesday" or maybe "Worth Missing Wednesday."  They're moving that stupid waste of time "Whitney" to Wednesday nights to be near that new stupid Chelsea Handler show.

The Chelsea thing might be okay. It has Laura Prepon, who I love. But it's going to be forever attached to Whitney Cummings. Seriously?  Have you seen "Two Broke Girls?" It's on CBS on Monday nights. Whitney produces or writes it. I don't know which. I just know, she's associated with it, and it sucks ass. It's a bunch of stupid sex jokes. I've given it a chance because I like some of the actors in that show. But the writing is hideous.

Please cancel both of these shows, NBC.
